 TabPane usable for tabbed input forms?, Marja Ribbers-de Vroed, June 23, 2005

Subject: TabPane usable for tabbed input forms? From: Marja Ribbers-de Vroed Date: June 23, 2005


In my own custom CMS I'm currently using a tabpane system by Tim Scarfe (www.developer-x.com), which is very similar to the one found here on this site. I use the tabpanes to visually break forms with many input controls into smaller functional units.

However, I'm experiencing a problem with my current tabpane system, and I would like to know if this problem also applies to the tabpane system found here on this site.

The problem with the current tabpane system is:

The tabpane logic seems to interfere with the form submit. Forms using the tabpanes can only be used without problems 2 or 3 times in a row and after that the form will simply refuse to submit.

The onSubmit event seems to be fired, because I can throw alerts from there (did that to try and find out why the form wasn't submitting).
But although the onSubmit event fires, the form itself is not submitted... nothing happens at all.

Note: this only happens when the user has switched between tabs. If only the front/first tab was used/display, then there's no problem whatsoever for submitting the forms.

Does this issue sound familiar to anyone here?
Has anyone safely used the tabpane system found on this site in a CMS for tabbed input forms?

Thanks in advance for any insights.
